Last month, I posted one of my photos to NHK Fukushima Bureau to win the 6th Fukushima Sakura Photo Contest so that I promote Tanagura Town more.
I was confident in that photo, as you can easily understand from my previous post. I received a envelope from the bureau the other day. I was very confident until I opened it.
The paper inside the envelope says that I failed at the 6th Fukushima Sakura Photo Contest. I was frustrated. The only relief was that it says another photo of Tanagura Town won the first prize, and two other photos of Tanagura Town were accepted. My purpose to make Tanagura Town more popular through the contest ended up being achieved by others.
I need much more practice...
